New York, NY – Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, Cleveland Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson and Indianapolis' T.Y. Hilton have been selected as the AFC's top players for Week 12 of the NFL season.
Rice picked up the offensive award after totaling 67 receiving yards and 97 yards on the ground as the Ravens rallied to beat San Diego in overtime. He helped force overtime by taking a short pass and converting a 4th-and-29 late in the fourth quarter. Six plays later, Justin Tucker nailed the game-tying field goal.
Jackson garnered the defensive honor after posted a team-high nine tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in the Browns' 20-14 win over Pittsburgh. He was part of a unit that registered eight takeaways.
The rookie Hilton was recognized as the top special teams performer after returning a punt 75 yards for a touchdown in the Colts' 20-13 victory over Buffalo. He also recorded an 8-yard touchdown reception in the game, becoming the first player in Colts history to have a punt-return TD and touchdown reception in the same game.
